Last weekend we were invited up to my friend's cottage and Molson was really lucky to have his first boating experience! He LOVED it and was such a good boy, only trying to jump in when I had my turn at wakeboarding! Our friends had to hold his leash while that was happening but otherwise he loved it.

He spent most of the weekend sniffing out the tracks of my friend's parents' 2 yellow labs who weren't able to make it up with us.

At one point on Saturday afternoon, 2 'intruders' made their way onto our turf... I think they may have been Irish Setters, but one of them was much bigger (taller) than others I've seen. The smaller one was alright but just kind of stood as a statue wagging his tail and the bigger one was MEAN! It was Molson's first experience with a mean dog, and once he got too close to us I took Molson inside.

I know you're not reading this for the story so here are the pictures!

GREAT PICTURES! Glad you posted them. Molson looks like he had a ball, learned a lot, got thoroughly tired out and is ready for next time.

Oh, WOW, Molson is such a good lookin' boy! Very photogenic! And now a certified boat dog, too :)

Watch him over that motor in the back though....(I'm a scared wussy:uhoh:)

Those setters look like hunting dogs...a little ratty, too.

I had that same thought. Please be very, very careful around those outboard motors. There have been dogs that have been fatally injured jumping in and getting caught by those blades. And, yes, I too am an overprotective, worry wart Mom, but there's great truth in the ole ounce of prevention saying.

All that being said, what great pics. Molson is just a doll and looks like he had the time of his life.

I appreciate everyone's concern for his safety. He was held on a leash/being held by the collar every time the boat was in motion.

Thanks for all the comments! Molson was so tired out from the fresh air that it took him until Tuesday night to recover :D I think he's bored this weekend because we are not cottaging like the last 2 weekends!
